At twenty-two, Alan Corey left his mom's basement in Atlanta and moved to New York City with one goal in mind: to become a millionaire by the time he was thirty. His parents and friends laughed, but six years later they were all celebrating his prosperous accomplishment at a bar Corey owned in one of Brooklyn's hippest neighborhoods.
No, Corey didn t climb the corporate ladder to build his fortune. In fact, he worked the same entry-level 9-to-5 job for six years straight. But by pinching his pennies and making sound investments, he watched a pittance blossom into a seven-digit bank account. In "A Million Bucks by 30," Corey recounts his rags-to-riches journey and shares his secrets to success.
What a steal . . . For any entrepreneur the advice in these pages is worth more than a million bucks.
Barbara Corcoran, founder, The Corcoran Group
This is the best personal finance book I ve ever read. Part self-help, part brass-tacks money guide; Corey's confessional tales of making it to the million dollar mark are as hilarious as they are helpful.
John Reynolds, writer, "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.
